Hochstadter's Slow & Low Rock & Rye Whiskey
Slightly hot and peppery in the initial taste that gives quickly to mellow, smooth sweetness with subtle hints of rock candy, honey and citrus. Enjoy the long and slightly sweet finish. Try it neat.
Its humble beginnings can be traced back to the saloons of the burgeoning nation‚ where stern-faced barkeeps would pour a shot of rye and let the customers add their own rock candy‚ thereby creating a drink similar to the granddaddy of all cocktails: the Old Fashioned. The effects of the new concoction were so immediate and so powerful that by the mid 19th Century the Rock and Rye cocktail migrated from the bar to the pharmacy.
